The starting point of this episode is the true story of Hugh Glass, who was horribly mauled by a grizzly. He refused to die, and was left in the care of two fellow trappers (one of them Jim Bridger). When Glass still refused to die, they abandoned him. (What happens to Tug is minor, in comparison.) Glass crawled many miles to a fort, swearing revenge.
